folia

Electric guitar, electronics.

folia is the third CD collaboration of Andy Moor (guitar) and Yannis Kyriakides (computer) created in 2009 and performed in numerous festivals and concerts that year. It is an epic reworking of the famous tune from the 16th and 17th centuries called "La Folia". Fusing influences from this and South American folk music, they create a unique sound world of slowly evolving soundscapes, fluctuating beats, and rich oscillating harmonies.

Excerpt from performance at a STEIM concert curated by DJ Sniff @ Japan Society, New York City May 8th 2010.
